After upgrading to stock Android 4.4 I found that the battery icons are not SystemUI pngs like before, so I couldn't simply make an updated version of my 1% Animated Battery Mod for this rom.

I've built a new VRTheme template that works on Android 4.4 and used it to make a flashable zip that will change most of the statusbar and pulldown icons, softkeys, clock & battery colour to ICS Blue.

The percentage is now built into the rom and although it isn't enabled by default, it can be enabled by flashing the latest battery percent apk by @kroegerama

The VRThemes should be flashed using either TWRP or CWM recovery but, as usual, take a Nandroid backup before flashing


Blue VRTheme

Grouper_4.4.2_KOT49H_Blue_VRTheme.zip - 1.72 MB

Grouper_4.4_Blue_VRTheme.zip - 1.67 MB

Changes icons, softkeys, clock & battery colour to ICS Blue. To enable the 1% battery percentage, flash the latest battery percent apk from kroegerama's thread and switch the option on.





If you're running Deodexed stock 4.4.2 KOT49H then the version below has the battery percentage pre-enabled.
NOTE: THIS VERSION IS ONLY FOR STOCK KOT49H DEODEXED

Grouper_4.4.2_KOT49H_Deodexed_Blue_VRTheme.zip - 9.02 MB


Revert to Stock Themes

Grouper_4.4.2_KOT49H_Odexed_Revert_To_Stock.zip - 6.40 MB

Grouper_4.4.2_KOT49H_Deodexed_Revert_To_Stock.zip - 6.62 MB

Grouper_4.4_KRT16S_Revert_To_Stock.zip - 6.38 MB

Grouper_4.4_KRT16O_Revert_To_Stock.zip - 6.38 MB

These remove the Blue VRTheme by replacing the themed apks with stock versions so that OTA updates can be taken.

Update

After my OTA update to KRT16S failed because core files had been changed, I've updated the "Revert to Stock Themes" so that they replace the themed apks with their stock versions so that OTA updates can be taken.

Thanks for posting this, I was starting to miss the blue from jb. The white on Kit Kat is pretty boring. When they put out the official update for this device they did a piss poor job when it came to theming it right. Thanks again, this helps out a lot.

Sorry, I won't be doing different colours as I prefer ICS blue.

I'm not sure as I'm not on 4.4,2 yet.

Once I am, I'll check and post back

Yep, as I expected - the theme updates resources.arsc from SystemUI.apk and this is different in 4.4.2 KOT49H

I'll update it ASAP

Hello. I love this theme!!! I've just upgraded to krt16h, but I have found out it doesn't work anymore. Are you thinking of making one? Cheers
